Nothing is more powerful than a group of people fully dedicated to the achievement of common goals…
Organizations are comprised of people, the management of whom will ultimately determine business success or failure. Inspire and align them to achieve common goals – your business goals – and success will be yours.
Acquiring the right employees and inspiring them to commit the full measure of their intellectual, creative, and skill-based talents to the achievement of the business’ goals remains a central part of an entrepreneur’s role.
Acquiring the right talent for any position is never easy and all the more difficult for the entrepreneur. Small businesses can, but not always, lack the stability of larger firms; giving employee candidates pause when considering whether or not to join the team. Additionally, members of a small business family may need to wear several ‘hats;’ fulfilling tasks in multiple roles some of which may not be part of their core competencies.
With no resources to spare, the entrepreneur must motivate each employee to contribute their utmost effort well aligned with achievement of the organization’s goals. No small feat for any leader but one with no room for error in an entrepreneurial setting where resources can be particularly scarce.
Like all organizations, small business enterprises must onboard, train, evaluate, and reward (both positively and negatively) its employees. Rules and regulations govern these programs and must be adhered to by the entrepreneur and his or her leadership and management teams.
